Lakeside Small Business Nominee Recognized By Senator Anderson Katie Downing

For The East County Herald LAKESIDE — Located within a historical building in Lakeside is the office of EC Constructors—a local business that was recently nominated for the 38th Senate District Small Business of the Year Award by the Lakeside Chamber of Commerce. State Senator Joel Anderson awarded EC Constructors with a Certificate of Excellence to thank them for all of the work they have done for the area. When reflecting upon the work this business has done for the Lakeside community, Anderson praised EC Constructors by stating, “EC Constructors has made heartfelt contributions to our community and is an excellent example of small businesses making East County a better place. It is my honor to recognize them and the work they continue to do.” Sherri and Jim Summers both own and operate EC Constructors. Sherri Summers went to El Capitan High School, and coincidentally EC Constructor’s first job brought her

back to the school for some renovations. Summers explained that as a company they do a lot of work with schools. Both of Summers’ children went to Granite Hills High School. There, EC Constructors built a new science building and reconstructed a touching memorial for a former teacher that had passed away. Prior to their renovation, the memorial for the teacher consisted of a plaque on the ground and a tree planted in order to celebrate his life. Instead of demolishing the site of the memorial when constructing the new science building, they made the decision to keep the tree alive and create a new elevated plaque with a concrete face to make it easier for everyone passing by to see. The work EC Constructors does for the community does not stop at schools. One of their more touching community projects was the Cedar Fire Memorial. The Cedar Fire in 2003 was devastating, but also demonstrated the strength and resilience of the Lakeside community. When asked about the memorial, Summers stated, “Instead of just writing

n election after election, California officialdom has been frustrated by low levels of interest among eligible voters. Just when they were beginning to feel like they had tried almost everything, the obvious solutions to the problem appeared spontaneously: Give eligible Californians exciting, meaningful contests and they will turn out. When they feel their votes matter, they will fill out ballots, either at home or in polling booths. That’s why, instead of wringing hands and whining about irresponsible voters not performing their important duty, all of a sudden this spring state election officials are worried about seeing too many voters. That’s the clear upshot of an appeal by Secretary of State Alex Padilla, California’s top election official, for more money to stage the June primary. In April, he warned of a turnout “surge” and asked Gov. Jerry Brown and the Legislature for an additional $32 million to pay for more and fatter election guides for the November election, plus added funds to help counties cope with an anticipated flood of voters both then and in June. The two presidential nomination races have produced massive turnouts so far this year across the county, and Padilla realizes California will be the same – in fact it may see a higher percentage increase than anywhere else. One reason is that in recent pre-Donald Trump, pre-Bernard Sanders days, there was little excitement or pizzazz in the state’s elections for 10 years, since Arnold Schwarzenegger’s last run for governor in 2006. Even then there wasn’t much of a contest, as Democratic rival Phil Angelides essentially got swamped. Likewise, there was virtually no contest in 2014, when turnout dropped almost 25 percent from the presidential election voting levels of 2012. In that vote, Brown easily beat his Republican rival Neel Kashkari, a former Federal Reserve banker who has since taken a new role in the national central bank. The extreme low 2014 turnout did two things, causing the number of signatures required for putting initiatives onto the ballot to drop by more than a quarter and pushing officialdom to consider desperate measures. That low vote is behind a current plan to automatically register any U.S. citizen getting a drivers’ license as a voter. It also explains proposals to allow online voting, despite the hackable history of allegedly secure computer systems from credit cards to government records and national security secrets. The real way to spur turnout isn’t anything risky like that. Rather, it’s to make elections meaningful. California legislators could begin by moving the state’s presidential primary up permanently to a slot just after New Hampshire. True, other states won’t like that, because candidates would have to spend time in California rather than the much smaller South Carolina or Minnesota or Tennessee, all among states that voted this year either in mid-February or early March. It’s long been a situation of the tail wagging the dog, as for the last 44 years – since George McGovern used California to win the 1972 Democratic nomination – no California presidential vote has meant much, until this year’s. The rare happenstance of no candidate being sufficiently appealing to seal a party nomination until the very last day of the primary season – if then – is the reason California’s vote suddenly emerged as important. That hadn’t happened in 44 years. So leave the state’s presidential primary in June and California will mostly likely wander another 40 years in the desert of irrelevancy. Not every nominating season will be as exciting as this one: For one thing, the White House is about to be vacated by its incumbent resident, so both parties are nominating now. For another, unique personalities like Trump and Sanders don’t come along in every election cycle. The implications of all this for routine elections around California are also clear. Match exciting candidates against each other and potential voters will become interested enough to become regular voters. Allow elections to be virtually uncontested, as many have been, and interest will wane. The same when voters get the sense that certain candidates appear to be anointed. The bottom line: When voters feel their ballots matter, they will make casting them a priority. When they don’t feel that way, voters won’t bother.

How Common is Amnesia?



In soap operas, the writers love to include characters with amnesia who don’t remember their identities. Is it common for someone to actually forget who they are?


. It’s extremely rare. People with amnesia usually are aware of their identities. A person’s identity is among the most durable long-term memories. Amnesia, which means loss of memory, comes in several forms. The most common type is anterograde amnesia. People with this form have trouble learning and making new memories. Those who suffer from retrograde amnesia have an impaired ability to recall past events and information that were once familiar. Transient global amnesia is a temporary loss of all memory, but you remember who you are, and you recognize people you know well. It is a rare form of the disorder. Psychogenic amnesia is caused by trauma such as surviving an explosion. A victim of this form of amnesia can lose personal memories and autobiographical information briefly. This form of amnesia is probably the inspiration for all those soap scribes. There are different types of memory affected by amnesia. Memory can be divided into: Immediate: Recalling information a few seconds after learning it Short-term: Recalling recently learned information minutes or more after presentation Long-term: Memory of remote events occurring months or years ago There are other memory definitions, too: • Procedural memory about how to perform a task such as knitting • Declarative memory about past information or experiences • Semantic memory that is independent of time, such as vocabulary • Episodic memory linked to a time such as birthday • Prospective memory about a future occurrence such as a planned meeting There are other symptoms of amnesia. These may include confusion, disorientation, seizures, tremors, lack of coordination and false memories. Any trauma or disease that impacts the brain can affect memory. The following are some causes: Brain tumors, heart attack, head injury, encephalitis (brain inflammation), stroke, carbon monoxide poisoning, dementia, seizures, electroconvulsive therapy, drugs such as benzodiazepines that treat anxiety. There are no drugs to treat most types of amnesia. Scientists are looking into brain neurotransmitters hoping to find ways to treat memory disorders. For now, there are techniques being used to help people with amnesia. These include occupational therapy to develop memory, and the use of electronic organizers, notebooks and photographs as reminders.

Living with MS with Dee Dean

Cytokine Now Seen to Have Restorative Properties


esearchers at the School of Medicine of the University of California (UC), Riverside, found that TNF-alpha, a factor known for its pro-inflammatory actions, also triggers processes that end inflammation by inducing a type of immune surveillance cell, called M-cells. By advancing our understanding of immune processes, the finding may lead to more specific treatments for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and other autoimmune diseases. “The induction of M cells by TNF-alpha suggests that the body may have a builtin system that promotes the inflammation as well as regulates and ultimately suppresses the response,” said David Lo, the study’s senior author and a professor of biomedical sciences at UC Riverside, said in a press release. TNF-alpha has been observed to drive inflammation and induce tissue damage in several autoimmune diseases by triggering the production of other inflammatory molecules. But, as the finding showed, it can also stimulate tissue repair by resolving inflammation. “Cytokines are regulators of host responses to infection and inflammation,” Dr. Lo said. “Some make disease worse

because they are pro-inflammatory. Others reduce inflammation and promote healing because they are anti-inflammatory. TNF-alpha plays a dual role in that it does both. If we had a more focused way of dealing with the undesired inflammatory aspects of TNFalpha, we could still retain the healing, restorative aspects of this cytokine.” In the study, titled “Induction of Colonic M Cells during Intestinal Inflammation” and published in The American Journal of Pathology, the research team explored TNFalpha in the gut of mice, focusing on inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) — an inflammatory condition often treated with anti-TNF-alpha antibodies, entirely removing the actions of the signaling factor. Such an approach is not used in MS because these drugs increase disease activity, a finding that might be linked to the dual actions of TNFalpha. While the study did not attempt to address this issue, its results might provide clues to MS disease processes. “Advanced immune surveillance is a clue into how the immune system is attempting to restore balance and calm in the tissues,” Dr. Lo said. “If M cell production is a critical part of this restoration process, then it means we can

develop more targeted therapies that don’t block this restoration. Many of the biologicals being used today absorb and wipe out TNF-alpha, but in the long run this may be harmful to the patient, because removing TNF-alpha altogether also blocks its ability to produce restorative mechanisms.” The research team is now focused on untangling the processes, potentially enabling the discovery of more selective therapies targeting TNF-alpha.

Wisdom for


with Pastor Drew

A Fond Farewell to ‘Mr. East County’ A Day in the Life of Jesus The Messiah SANTEE — B. W. ‘Stoney’ Stone – also known as ‘Mr. East County’ – of Santee, passed away peacefully in his home, Wednesday, Apr. 20, surrounded by his family and loved ones. Born in Mesa, Arizona in 1925, his family moved to California when he was a young teen. Stoney graduated from Sweetwater High School in 1943. Immediately afterward he served in the Army Air Forces from 1943-1946. Stoney married his beautiful wife Bonnie in 1955. During their 54 year marriage, the two shared five children, four grandchildren and two great grandchildren. Stoney’s first business venture was a market he opened in El Cajon called Stoney’s Rock & Roll Market on Jamacha Road. After the family closed the market, Stoney ventured into the banking industry and became President of Cajon Valley Bank – he retired in early 2000 from Temecula Valley Bank. Stoney’s greatest passion, aside from his family, was helping underprivileged children. From that passion he founded the East County Toy and Food Drive, now headed into its’ 41st year. The drive has since become East County’s largest Holiday charity collection event. Fourteen years ago, Stoney asked the Salvation Army to join the drive as their organization was better equipped to distribute the large amount of food and toys collected. After hosting the Holiday party for the drive for several years, Viejas Casino & Resort took on a major roll and donate thousands of toys annually. It is now estimated that directly due to Stoney’s efforts and initiative, $50-$60 thousand dollars is raised for families and the children of East County through the Toy and Food Drive annually. Over 20,000 families and over 50,000 children have been assisted by Stoney’s annual East County Toy & Food Drive. As a result, because of Stoney, thousands of East County children have a happier and merrier Christmas. Twenty-four years ago Stoney received a call from El Cajon Police requesting assistance in seeking funds for a D.A.R.E. program. Stoney called some business acquaintances and they formed a nonprofit organization to raise money for the program. From that effort it evolved into Stoney’s Kids and now Stoney’s Kids Legacy. Through Stoney’s Kids, Stoney was able to continue to assist underprivileged kids through-out the year. Stoney’s Kids has raised over $800,000 since 1991 to fund programs and provide needs for East County kids. It became known as ‘A Culture of Generosity.’ They fund after school youth programs, summer camp, provide sports equipment, uniforms and shoes for sporting activities, provide musical instruments for school programs, provide exercise equip-

ment for the disabled and help fund playground build-outs, just to name a few. Sycuan Resort has hosted Stoney’s Kids annual Birthday Party for several years and has become large part of the Stoney’s Kids family and it’s success. To sum up Stoney’s Kids [Legacy], as Stoney himself put it, “It’s All About The Kids.” Stoney’s other civic responsibilities and accomplishments include: • 1967 – Man of The Year, San Diego-Imperial Counties Grocer’s Assoc. • 1970 – Mother Goose Parade Association President • 1987 – Citizen of The Year, City of El Cajon • 1996 – Winner of the C.

Allen Paul Award, San Diego East County Chamber of Commerce • 2005 – American Red Cross Real Hero Humanitarian Award, San Diego-Imperial Counties Stoney was also a 40 year member of the Lion’s Club and heavily involved in countless fund-raising initiatives on behalf of The East County Boys & Girls Club, Grossmont Union High School District, Rescue Task Force, The American Cancer Society and Cajon Valley Union School District, among others. It wasn’t long before Stoney became known in his community of San Diego’s East County as ‘Mr. East County.’



reetings precious people, this week we continue our series entitled, “A day in the life of Jesus the Messiah.” As a reminder, we are doing this series that you may come to know the truth about Jesus as the Word of God the Bible conveys it. This week we will look at the events that led up to what is known as the Last Supper. In Mark 14:1-21 we read “After two days it was the Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread. And the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take Him by trickery and put Him to death. But they said, “Not during the feast, lest there be an uproar of the people.” And being in Bethany at the house of Simon the leper, as He sat at the table, a woman came having an alabaster flask of very costly oil of spikenard. Then she broke the flask and poured it on His head. But there were some who were indignant among themselves, and said, “Why was this fragrant oil wasted? For it might have been sold for more than three hundred denarii and given to the poor.” And they criticized her sharply. But Jesus said, “Let her alone. Why do you trouble her? She has done a good work for Me. For you have the poor with you always, and whenever you wish you may do them good; but Me you do not have always. She has done what she could. She has come beforehand to anoint My body for burial. Assuredly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is preached in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be told as a memorial to her.” Then Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went to the chief priests to betray Him to them. And when they heard it, they were glad, and promised to give him money. So he sought how he might conveniently betray Him. Now on the first day of Unleavened Bread, when they killed the Passover lamb, His disciples said to Him, “Where do You want us to go and prepare, that You may eat the Passover?” And He sent out two of His disciples and said to them, “Go into the city, and a man will meet you carrying a pitcher of water; follow him. Wherever he goes in, say to the master of the house, “The Teacher says, “Where is the guest room in which I may eat the Passover with My disciples?”’ Then he will show you a large upper room, furnished and prepared; there make ready for us.” So His disciples went out, and came into the city, and found it just as He had said to them; and they prepared the Passover. In the evening He came with the twelve. Now as they sat and ate, Jesus said, “Assuredly, I say to you, one of you who eats with Me will betray Me.” And they began to be sorrowful, and to say to Him one by one, “Is it I?” And another said, “Is it I?” He answered and said to them, “It is one of the twelve, who dips with Me in the dish. The Son of Man indeed goes just as it is written of Him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been good for that man if he had never been born.” In these verses we see 4 distinct events: the soon approach of the Passover; a woman by faith anoints Jesus for His upcoming burial; Judas Iscariot’s agreement to betray Jesus for 30 pieces of silver; Jesus celebrating the Passover with His disciples. There are many things in these verses that impress me and one of the main ones is Jesus’ love and patience with His disciples. I cannot imagine the anguish that Jesus had to be in, knowing what awaited Him in just a few hours as He would be betrayed; tried in a kangaroo court; convicted and condemned; scourged; beaten; mocked; nailed to a cross and then receive in His own body the punishment of Hell for my sins. All the while those closest to Him (His disciples) were consumed with their own interests of which one of them was accounted to be the greatest among them. Oh the depth and riches of the love and longsuffering of God toward such as me.
